So I've heard of violins being stolen when the poor person wasn't even with it (left in a hotel room or car for instance), but that has never really been my biggest worry as an urban violinist. My instrument has to take public transit with me, often daily, and sometimes I must walk alone at night with it. I'm wondering if anyone has had their instrument mugged from them or taken in a moment of inattention? I'm hoping for some stories so I can learn from other people's mistakes and perhaps horrify myself into constant vigilance. Tips on how to keep it safe are always helpful too!
